The stream bottom. A relaxed scene with colors of the stones taking on a muted look.
The brook trout looking more beautiful on this damp day.
This bee was moving up into the flower to avoid the rain or so it appeared.

There was a movie filmed in the diner too.
One of the several houses on the property. I love these.
From the vise...Sakasa Kebari...these orange bodied flies have been working well.

"The wild brook trout is one of the most colorful native freshwater fish in Connecticut. If you are fortunate to capture one of these fish, you will easily understand the nickname "Aphrodite of the Hemlocks"....Connecticut Wildlife...

Pools, pools and more pools. In between are riffles...look to the riffles.
This little guy was impressive. Taking on color and a small very black lower jaw.
Late summer blooms.
Sometimes a picture actually shows the dorsal of the brook trout.
They liked this fly...thanks Mike.
So I think I'll take the bamboo rod and the Altoid box and find a stream today.

This fly uses a thorax of opossum and a feather from a hen pheasant.
This pattern is a variation of the Pheasant Tail-Partridge.
Yvon Chouinard the founder of Patagonia and simplistic fly fisher and fly tyer shows his way of tying the Pheasant Tail-Partridge.

Wood in the stream provides so much for the trout that inhabit the tiny blue lines.
It is also a road map to finding willing brookies.
This time of year one can see some subtle changes taking place.
It was both a crease and a brookie.
I'm glad they were here this day, a day through the rain drops.

Can you identify the fly?
Pretty nice view at 6am.
Typical Farmington brook trout.
I think I like having the Farmington so close.
